Love it Up! How to Live Your Highest Standards

IMG_3297 - Copy

Affirmation: I live up to my highest standards with love and joy.

That’s my sister Amber, myself and my best friend Bea (right-to-left) on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which is on the west rim. It was a long time dream of my mine to walk the Skywalk and so this image is me living up to my “highest” standards with love and joy. We are on a glass bridge 4000 feet above the canyon after all! What you might not be able to see from my calm demeanor and giant smile in this photo is I’m totally freaking out, but it was all worth it.

Today’s affirmation revolves around living up to your own high standards through love and joy. That means you don’t beat up on yourself when you’re not meeting your own standards or someone else’s for that matter. Instead we fill our hearts with joy and unconditional love for ourselves. The more love and joy we shine upon ourselves, the more we are able to meet and often exceed our highest standards.

I wrote today’s affirmation because for the past couple days I’ve had a shooting pain in my shin. According to Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life the emotional side of this pain comes from, “Breaking down ideals. Shin’s represent the standards of life.” I’ve been focusing on this affirmation since the pain arrived and it seems to be working because its finally starting to go away, so I thought I’d share.

If you don’t already have You Can Heal Your Life I definitely recommend it. It’s one of those books you’ll keep. YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE. Remember you create your life, therefore you can heal your life.

What are your highest standards? Are you living them with love and joy?

The Goddess Lakshmi

I AM blessed with abundance and beauty.

Living Fae

Jai Maa!


Having just returned from 4 blissful days of kirtan, yoga and workshops at Shakti Fest in Joshua Tree, CA, I AM exploding with divine feminine light and love to cast upon you. Shakti Fest is a more retreat like version of its parent yogi festival, Bhakti Fest.

The heart of Shakti Fest, like its name depicts, is centered around the divine feminine.  One of the key transformational experiences that came out of the event was divine union with one our Living Fae archetypes Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity,  fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. She represents these energies in both their spiritual and material forms.

As light workers we are attracted to numerous deities and have built altars, invoked and performed rituals to honor each of them. Lakshmi has most certainly always been around and within us, but presently she is shining through to us ever more prominently. She of course comes to us in…

Mantras for Happiness

photo by Kristy Mitchell

photo by Kristy Mitchell

Affirmation: I AM united with Source. I  breathe life into faith and love to deepen my connection with the divine.

I just finished my morning meditation. The last few days my meditation has consisted of 3 mantras I’ve been chanting along with Deva Premal. I start with the Moola Manta (which is an invocation), then chant Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha, and finish with the Gayatri Mantra.

The Moola Mantra  evokes the living God. It asks for protection and freedom from sorrow and suffering. It is a prayer that manifests the divine through love and compassion in an earthly form to protect us.

Om Ganapatayei Namaha is the chant for Ganesh, the remover of obstacles. It opens us up to bring positive changes and our desires to life. I chant this 108 times.

The Gayatri Mantra is a very highly revered mantra and is one of the oldest and most powerful. It is the mantra of enlightenment. It is believed that by chanting the Gayatri mantra you will fulfill your true life work and find happiness.

I’ve been doing this set the past 3 mornings, and I’m continuing for the next 21 days. I had been doing some chanting meditations and I felt called to put these 3 together. At the time, I wasn’t clear on the meaning behind each one, but now I can see why I put them together. If you are interested in trying this with me it takes about 30 minutes to do all 3. Something tells me it will take us to a very divine place. Just click on each of the links above to access the Deva Premal YouTube videos for each of the Mantras or you can download them from iTunes.

I’m on my way to Shakti Fest out in Joshua Tree for the next 3 days (May 17 – 19). Its a festival of yoga, kirtan music and workshops celebrating the divine feminine. I’m really looking forward to the experience and basking in the vibratory glow. I’ll be there with the Live In Wonder crew so if you happen to be there come find me.

Love, light and faerie dust,✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫
